I just changed mine, you will need inner tie rod tool and adapter you can get them at autozone or other auto part stores, they loan them with a depost, there is a rubber boot that you will need to remove,that is the trickest part, it has a crimp clamp on it, you can use a screwdriver to loosen then brake pliers to tighten back on,I would not take on this job unless you are comfortable working on cars a shop will do it for around 150.

Honestly from my position as a mechanic if you have never done this let a garage handle that for your safety difficult and you need special tools

Need to replace inner tie rod on a 1998 ford ranger two wheel drive , driver side . engine size is 2.5. do i have to take outer tie rod off as well?


webbraymond2, Yes, you have to remove the outer tie to access the inner tie rod. When you do this, count the rotations of the tie rod as this will have to be replaced when the new inner tie rod is installed. Counting the rotations will allow you to put the outer tie rod close to where it was when you started the job. You are changing the toe setting when you have to replace either the inner or outer tie rod. You need to access and remove the jamb nut and boot before you can access the inner tie rod and this is why the outer needs to be removed first. A wheel alignment is advised after you finish the job. Good luck with this.

One of the steering rods that goes from the rack to the right tie rod is bent. Can I replace the rod or must I replace the entire rack?


you can replace just the tie rod yourself although you do need a special tool but you should be able to get it at any parts store just take the outer tie rod loose from the steering knuckle remove the rubber boot from the inner tie rod and get the proper size tool to fit he nut and remove and replace the inner tie rod and install in reverse order make sure to count the amout of turns that removed the outer tie rod and reinstall the same amount of turns then afterward the car needs to be aligned

How do i replace the outer tie rod on my van


Very simple. 1. Remove the front wheel 2. Take the proper size wrench and loosen the nut on the tie rod and rack and pinion 3. Remove the cotter pin from the castle nut where the tie rod goes through the spindle(hub assembly) 4. Remove the castle nut and hit the area where the joint goes through until the shaft comes loose with a hammer 5. spin the outer tie rod off counting the number of spins 6. Reverse this procedure to install. If you need the inner tie rod(inner socket), let me know and I should be able to find a diagram and instructions.

2000 LINCOLN LS - Outer tie rod removal assistance


Yes degreaser will not hurt it. The outer tie rod is retained only by one nut that connects it to the inner tie rod.Once you have this loosen just turn the outer tie rod to the left to remove it from the inner tie rod.

Am changing the inner tie rod on a 2000 cirrus with a 2.5 and cant figure out how to get old one off


to get the inner tie rod out you need an inner tie rod tool, it's a long tube that fits a 1/2 inch drive rachet and there's different size adaptors that go into the end of it to fit over the tie rod, find the right size put into tool, put over tie rod and brake it loose, reverse for installtion.

I have a 2000 Dodge neon, and I need a Passenger side front inner tie rod. How do I know if mine is a firm feel steering or non firm feel, because those are the two different types of tie rods I can choose...


This is the 1st time I heard of 2 being available! You learn something new every day. I checked and there are 2 as you say,
1. Firm feel steering inner tie rod is 293.7mm long, or 11.563 (11-1/2") inches
2. Standard feel steering inner tie rod is 274mm long or 10.7874 (10-3/4") inches long. Remove yours (count the # of turns to remove, replace new end with same # of turns to get the adjustment close and you should get a front end alignment after doing any front end work) and measure it. That's the best way to determine what you need, the 'firm feel' is about 3/4 inch longer than the 'standard feel'. Let me know how it goes.
